summary of the tuesday trading session in frankfurt -- our correspondent sent us the summary. >> just today, the euro dropped to the lowest level since the beginning of april. one reason is, of course, that the u.s. economy is coming out of the doldrums a bit better than the eurozone, which, for a large chunk, is still persistingly in recession, and for the other part, it seems there is a serious cooling down, even in the german economy. alcoa kicked off the earnings season in the united states with a pretty good numbers set. as well, you can see that chinese demand is not going back slow, as a lot of people expected of the market side, and that is one good sign or german companies, who are traditionally, as well, very much worth-orientated.
